How to implement function like this?

Hello gurus,

I have a question, a function like below, it is implemented by me, :)

def funcA(tarray):
a = [2,3,4]
if len(tarray) >=3:
return a[0],a[1], a[2]
elif len(tarray) == 2:
return a[0],a[1], funcB(1)[0]
elif len(tarray) == 1:
return a[0], funcB(2)[0], funcB(2)[1]
else:
return funcB(3)[0], funcB(3)[1], funcB(3)[2]
The return of funcA is always 3 values, but depending on the length of
tarray, I need to return different values accordingly. if tarray lenght is
2, I need to get another one value from funcB, if tarray length is 0, I need
to get all three values from funcB.
Is there a brief way to achieve it?

Thanks,

Untested:

def func_a(t_array):
result = [2, 3, 4]
t_array_length = len(t_array)
remaining_length = len(result) - t_array_length
if t_array_length < len(result):
result = (result[:t_array_length]
+ func_b(remaining_length)[:remaining_length])
return tuple(result)

xB = max(3 - len(tarray), 0)
return chain(a, islice(funcB(xB), xB))

even shorter:

def funcA(tarray):
s = min(len(tarray), 3)
return [2, 3, 4][0:s] + [e for e in funcB(3-s)[0:3-s]]

Why the list comprehension!?

sorry I just read too fast
and thought he worked with lists ...
anyway 'e for e in' and so list comprehension was useless here

def funcA(tarray):
s = min(len(tarray), 3)
return (2, 3, 4,)[0:s] + funcB(3-s)[0:3-s]

this is ok if funcB(...) returns a tuple ...
if it returns a list just add: tuple(funcB(...))

note: list comprehension transforms a tuple into a list
